Boeing's Huntsville Plant Home To New Production
Boeing and Israel Aircraft Industries will use a north Alabama
factory to make parts of the Israeli Arrow missile -- a
missile-killing system already protecting the Middle East
Boeing spokeswoman Martha Newhart said Thursday missile
components will begin rolling off the assembly line in late 2004 or
early 2005. She said Boeing will use its plant in Huntsville rather
than build a new one.
Final assembly will be conducted in Israel.
Finally, An Agreement
The IAI, owned by the Israeli government, and
Boeing signed an agreement last week, but the value of the deal was
not disclosed. Ms. Newhart said many details of the plan are
classified for security reasons.
More than 150 U.S. companies in some 25 states already make
parts for the Arrow missile.
The Arrow Weapons System (AWS) is now being operationally
deployed. It is the world's first Stand-Alone, Anti-Theater
Ballistic Missile (ATBM) National Defense System. Designed to
defend against the rising threat of Theater Ballistic Missiles
(TBMs), the Arrow carries a variety of warheads. The "uniquely
effective" ARROW II interceptor detects, intercepts and destroys
incoming TBMs and provides a large defended footprint, allowing the
protection of important strategic assets, as well as civilian
